A - This beer produces a small white head with nice lacing and decent retention. The beer is clear and copper in color.

S - The aroma has a lot of fruity characteristics. Grapefruit is the most apparent, but there is also citrus, orange and some piny notes. There is a nice caramel backbone throughout.

M - Medium in body with moderate carbonation. For the alcohol content, it's not syrupy at all.

T - There is a ton of dank hop flavor in this beer. Citrus and orange show up first, followed quickly by grapefruit through mid-taste. There are some piny notes and bitterness in the finish. There's a little bit of sweet malt present, but this beer is about the hops. There is virtually no alcohol presence, which is surprising for the beer being at 10%.

This is an amazingly drink-able beer. The alcohol content is well hidden. I prefer this to their even bigger Notorious Triple IPA. (887 characters)

Geez, this is a great beer. Awesome look. Sticky white head. Rich, amber body. Juicy, rich, piney, hoppy aroma. The feel is venomous. Something gives this a small bite. Amongst DIPAs, this is the best I have had this year. The best balanced DIPA I have had. Definitely World Class stuff. (296 characters)

On tap once again at one of the Bistro fests, my review #2400. As usual, Boneyard offers up a very light, yellow and orange colored ipa. Aroma is a blast of pine. Pine venom. Mixed in with that is a decent amount of tropical fruit as well. Very nice.

Taste, jeez, hides the alcohol so well, such a light malt bill, such a powerful hop flavor without abrasive bitterness. This is how its done, boneyard makes so many great versions of ipas and whatnot. Mouthfeel just keeps droppin' mad amounts of hop bomb grapefruit, pine and mango all up in yo senses. The malt bill does start to get heavier as you drink this, the hops ebb and flow and fade away slightly.

Usual stuff, tons of amarillo, simcoe and citra I would surmise. This is the new evolution of big hopped beers. Lots of proprietary hops, sugar, and little malt. Delicious. (835 characters)
